Great Lakes Base and Great Lakes Garrison participated in the Clawson Youth Assistance “Trick or Treat Trail” event in Clawson Michigan. Our NCS passed out candy while two Storm Troopers, a Jedi, Mara Jade, Rebel Pilot and Lando Calrissian stood along the path to greet and take pictures with the kids. The Stormtroopers were popular characters until it got dark, when the lightsabers could show up better… then Mara Jade and the Jedi were the “cool kids!” Whether you are a fan of the light side or dark side of the Force, both kids and adults were pleased to see us at the event.
The line of kids trick or treating looked like it would never end and we (surprisingly) did not run out of candy. We encountered many Elsas and Annas from “Frozen” along with several Ninja Turtles. Overall, this troop was a lot of fun and the looks on the kids faces made it worth it.
